Hello blogland! I have been away for a while taking a break after helping to make over a hundred cards to send out for our service men and women for the upcoming holidays. I just think I needed a creative break. I'm jumping back in slowly.
I made a sympathy card for a friend whom I have known since grade school. Her mother passed away from her battle with cancer. I should have made this card last week but I always find myself putting off making sympathy cards. I finally sat down last night and got it started then finished it up this morning.
Here is the card:
My inspiration for this card came from a card from Karen Giron. I made a few adjustments besides using different papers and colors. I switched the bow and tag to the right side and placed the focal image more to the left and I left off the gemstones under the border on the right side.
I also left off the wonderful sewing that Karen does on everyone of her cards. My sewing machine is in the back of our hall closet so I rarely bring it out. I wish I had room for it to sit out in my craft room but I don't see that happening any time soon.
Well I think we are back to our regular Pacific Northwest weather. It has been raining since yesterday and it's been a steady rain pretty much all afternoon. Looks like it's here to stay for a while.
Take care and come back for a visit soon.
